TRINITY AT SOUTHOVER: And St John sub Castro. Please join us on Sunday at 3pm in the Southover Chapter House, to hear Jonathan Lamb our church member working in Rwanda talking about his work there as part of Trinity’s mission in Rwanda. Jonathan has been based in the southwest of Rwanda for the Anglican Diocese of Cyangugu. During this time he has worked closely with the Bishop there, run a guest house, given professional support to a micro-finance scheme, and been used as a valuable facilitator and negotiator. It is sure to be a fascinating talk. On Thursday at 2.30pm LINK-UP a Southover based women’s social group would like to invite any women from Southover, St John sub-Castro and Malling parishes to join them for tea and cake in the Chapter House at Southover as they would like to meet you, so please do come along. Sunday November 8 is Remembrance Day. We are looking for a trumpet player to play the last post. If you can help please let the church office know by emailing: office@southover.org.uk Services this Sunday at St John sub Castro: 11.15am Informal family service; 4.30pm sung Communion with organ and choir. Services this Sunday at Southover: 8am Communion (prayer book); 10am morning service, a blend of traditional and contemporary, with choir, organ and band; 6.30pm informal service with singers and band. Please join us.

FOOTPATHS GROUP: Last Sunday we enjoyed the first walk on our new autumn/winter programme which started at the lovely village of Jevington, of Banoffee Pie fame. We enjoyed a five mile walk led by Keith which took us up to Butt’s Brow where we enjoyed the wonderful views of Eastbourne and the Weald before walking down the lovely stretch of downland which took us back to the village. Twenty three people enjoyed this exhilarating walk. Our new programme of walks can be found at www.lewesfootpathsgroup.org.uk or a printed programme can be obtained at the Lewes Tourist Bureau or the Outdoor Shop.

Our next walk is on Tuesday, Lewes to Stanmer. This will be an eight mile walk so bring a picnic with you. New walkers always welcome.
